Here's a Candyman from the Shoreline opening series on 10/03/87 and a "Top Ten" show from 1987 at that!


Listening to this got one to thinkin how cool it would have been if Garcia happened upon the "Simply, Completely Stoopid" webcast from TRI Studios over weekend last and jumped into a smokin rendition of "The Harder They Come!"

Here's a second Candyman Rec, and a great second set from across the Bay less than one year later. Both of these recordings reflect extremely competent late 80's performances.

Greek Theatre, Berkeley 07/17/88

2nd Set:

Box > Victim > Crazy Fingers > Playin > UJB > Watchtower > Believe It Or Not

That Harder to Come Jam is sure fun to think about. I always think what kind of things Jerry would be involved in today.

87-10-03 is very very nice indeed. I love Brent's playing particularly, as well as Jerry's solo of course.

I still like 88-03-24 however. I've just never heard Jerry sing it with that much passion. And as one of his main ballads I think the vocals are very important.

I have to check out 88-07-17 now.
